Senior Business Analyst Interview

Senior Business Analyst
Atlanta, GA

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Altisource in March 2012.

Interview Details – 1. Initial online personality screening
2. Timed online technical aptitude test at the Atlanta HQ
3. Panel interview with 1 BA, 2 Product Managers

The panel presented two "puzzles" or brain teasers that they required you to diagram a solution for. The teasers were in no way related to any standard business analysis methodology but they believe the teasers are the best method to evaluate analytical thinking ability.

Interview Question – The teasers were the most unexpected part of the interview.   Answer Question

Senior Software Architect Interview

Senior Software Architect
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Altisource.

Interview Details – Phone interview, Written Test, followed by face to face interview. Written test was qualitative, and personality tests.

First face to face interview with an architect, questions on application performance, scaling. Not too difficult.

Second round with Director of web group. Very disappointing. He was confused, and asked irrelevant questions.

Overall came back with negative impression of the entire process.

Interview Question – If application is slow, which tier of the application is responsible.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Poor impression of the interviewers

Clearing this is above the cut off is mandatory, This is followed by a technical round where your role is briefly explained and you grasp,understanding and communication skill carry weight.

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Altisource.

Interview Details – Telephonic first round, after that face to face 3 rounds.
Of these 2 rounds were technical with questions on java, j2ee, servlets, sql.

Final round interviewer was a Director, and i was surprised that he himself did not know answers to the questions he was asking. Was reading from a piece of paper! He mentioned he was head of web development group, but when asked about how many users requests his web application handled, he was clueless and was offended.

Interview Question – How does sorting help in search?   Answer Question

Tech Lead Interview

Tech Lead
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Altisource in March 2014.

Interview Details – Interview Process handled by HR was very bad and disgusting. The HR were not able to handle 50-70 candidate and there were almost 6-7 HR's. My interview was scheduled at 12:00 AM. I reached at the venue (Ecospace) at 11:45 noon They kept us waiting for almost 40 minutes in a conference room and to the surprise there was a aptitude test just to keep us busy and it was just for formality. My first round f2f(technical) happened at 5:00 PM after a wait of 4 hours after written test. There was no lunch provided by them, we need to pay and eat. The technical interviewer was not worried about what is your experience in your Resume and asked questions which they are confident upon. Below are the questions.

I rate the overall process of interview conducted and there Java/J2EE panel as 1.0 out of 5.0.

Interview Questions

  • 1. what type of collection we can use to store XML object Map, Set or ArrayList and why?   View Answer
  • 2. What is the other way to instantiate a bean by Spring container other than Dependency Injection?   View Answer
  • what is the difference between JavaScript and Java? What type of language is JavaScript?   View Answer

Consumer Research Manager Interview

Consumer Research Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Altisource in April 2010.

Interview Details – I received a screening phone call from a recruiter, which lasted about 30 minutes.
The recruiter sent me an email with a link for an online personality inventory-- the PI assessment. The assessment consisted of 2 screens, to select the characteristics that applied to me, and those that match what I think others expect of me .
I then interviewed with two members of the team during a job fair, which was scheduled for about an hour but ran about 90 minutes.Also during the job fair, but the next day, I completed a 12-minute intelligence test (the Wonderlic).
I received a conditional offer about a week after the job fair, and was asked to consent to a background check.

Interview Question – Questions were behavioral, examples of how I had handled various scenarios in my past. I only specifically remember being asked a question whether I'd had any ethical dilemmas in my work.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated on salary, early receipt of relocation expenses and conference attendance
